1) "Dad bod" is a male body type that is best described as "softly round." It's built upon the theory that once a man has found a mate and fathered a child, he doesn't need to worry about maintaining a sculpted physique.

If human bodies were cuts of meat, the dad bod would skew more marbled rib eye than filet mignon; or, if human bodies were sea mammals, dad bod would be more like a grazing manatee than a speedy dolphin. The dad bod is more mudslide than mountain, more soft serve than sorbet, more sad trombone than clarinet, more mashed potato than skinny fry. The dad bod is built for comfort.

2)Having a "dad bod" is a nice balance between working out and keeping a beer gut
1) Mike is totally working on that dad bod after getting his wife pregnant.

2) I miss Chris Pratt's dad bod from before he was on Guardians of the Galaxy.

A male who is usually over 30 years old that used to be jacked or in good shape. Usually has big arms and shoulders. An ex athlete or military veteran who is now an average joe blow with kids. He still lifts when he has time, but a crappy diet and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol lead to excess body fat and sometimes, a beer gut. Having kids, a mortgage, and demanding job allow for very little time or motivation to workout and diet religiously. Usually also hairy.

The type of physique a man "earns" when the increasing pressures of work life, married life, and especially fatherhood no longer allow him the time or drive to maintain a hard, toned figure. As a result, what was once a sculpted, chiseled frame degresses into a soft, flabby heaping pile of I Don't Give A Shit Anymore.
